and if that's the case, somebody out there knows how to screw up america's financial system. what do you know about this? >> it was our first question to ceo bob greifeld this morning, down on that floor right behind me. i said, i don't care about the technical issues and the discussions of the moment. was there any sign of hacking? he said absolutely not. any espionage? absolutely not. it doesn't mean it couldn't happen in the future, stuart. we have seen this happen at the wall street journal, new york times, some other financial institutions like big banks, but this, in essence, was a breakdown of one of the technical systems called a security information processor and that, in essence, is a system that dissemnates price information to some 13 other exchanges out there and 40 so-called dark pools, smaller, lesser traded, less liquid exchanges, but the issue becomes for the nasdaq, what about the faith in the nasdaq? everybody's wondering about the twitter ipo. we asked them about that, saying how do you make sure that you still lure that business? he says we're still one the big electronic
, good riddance. instead of a handout. >> reporter: so, behind me is america's eighth-largest city. and without question, one of its most beautiful. the question this morning, will this very ugly scandal finally come to an end? and, josh, we should know the answer to that in just a couple of hours. >> it's certainly been a long time coming. thank you, ryan owens for that. >>> we're going to turn to the story of a fisherman feared lost at sea, after falling overboard. but remarkably, he survives after treading water for hours. abc's john muller has the incredible story. >> reporter: this is the incredible moment when a 51-year-old fisherman finally makes it back on land, after almost 24 harrowing hours stranded at sea. steve moumouris' family, waiting in anticipation. >> he was in relatively good condition. dehydrated. but obviously happy to be alive. >> reporter: his story of survival begins wednesday afternoon, when moumouris set out for a fishing trip, off the coast of crystal river, florida. around 1:00 p.m., he texted his wife this picture of a fish he caught. when he headed ho
'm talking about leaders in america including parents, they need to get involved with this. why aren't we hearing from those examples and those who say that they have our best interests at heart? >> well, let me just be blunt with you. why aren't we hearing from civil rights leaders? i don't see the civil rights leaders out there leading marches and protests against violence, against the drug dealers, against the bad schools. saying to young women, hey, this is madness. i guess now it's about 30% of the white babies born to single moms, 50% of the hispanics, and as we just heard from colonel west, 70 plus percent of the black kids. where's the leadership to speak to that issue? to me there's a huge gap. even when president obama tries to speak to it, immediately there's a backlash. why are you talking down the black people? you remember jesse jackson threatened to castrate him. i just think that is another sign that these people are all in bed, literally sometimes, with the pornographers. a blind eye to the drug dealers, a blind eye to the people who tell you it's thug life or no life. th
the english fought for two years alone before america dribbled onto the scene and the english did and roosevelt in the american press spun the whole story. the invasion of north africa in 1942. there was no mention of the british being involved in the american press at first. he was a very interesting relationship between the three of them. >> one of the unsung heroes in the book is one of churchill's many aides of diarist who is also sort of a figure himself. he seems as if he really got the fly on the wall version. he drew on his work quite a bit. >> he should have kept a diary and he knew it. he could've been imprisoned for quite a long time but that diary opens the window onto churchill in private life during the war and everyone uses it. it's just absolutely marvelous because colville was with the prime minister at chamberlain's funeral if you will and it inner many many nights. on his foreign journeys so colville, colville's diaries are more accurate in the sense that churchill's remembrances -- of colville wasn't there they would only have churchill's word to take for every
. the european union has suspended arms sales. america has threatened to freeze military aid. it has branded the killing deplorable. it has long seen the military as crucial to stability. still, the influence now is in question. they are angry with washington. but while the west has been troubled, russia has moved in to offer military and economic support. >> russia used it to find out where they were. egypt will keep using this need to get the utmost of its relations. >> with our new foreign-policy, it will be a well-balanced relationship between egypt and the other major powers. china, russia, the u.s.. we already understand that concentrating on a given country is not good. >> the african union tries to negotiate with little success. egypt has clashed publicly with over what it sees as undue interference. these are tiring times, and worrying, too. >> it has been adopted in tunisia, libya, and the entire world is watching closely, the developments in egypt. >> the operator of the crippled fukushima nuclear plant says workers need help to stabilize and safely decommissioned damaged reactors
into the public sector as well. good morning, everybody, i'm martha maccallum in "america's newsroom." gregg: i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. obamacare provides many employers to provide coverage to anyone who works at least 30 hours a week. but to get around that, some employers are just cutting back on the hours this report coming just days after ups announced it will not provide coverage to husbands and wives of employees who can get insurance on their own. martha: ups is not alone in this. many employers fear they will not be able to afford it. some saying they still don't know what's in the law. this is years after it was signed into law and nancy pelosi famously said this. >> we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it away from the fog of the controversy. martha: the truth is, we are still finding out what's in it, stuart. companies are still scratching their heads saying we're not really sure how this will affect us and what it will cost us. stuart is the host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. what do you make of this latest news? >> it is chan
now in america, are people judged not by the color of their skin but the content of their character. 54% of all adults agreed with that statement but just 19% of african-americans. why do you suppose there's so much pessimism on the part of black americans whether or not they're being judged by the content of their character. >> it's not because black americans are naturally pessimistic. it's because they live life in this country and see what happens to themselves, to their children, they see their chances to move up the economic ladder stunted. they see their inbought to dolt better for themselves, their children, their grandchildren and see things not working out as well as they can. things were better than 50 years ago. there are loss in this country that prohibit me from being the victim of discrimination. but that doesn't mean that life is wonderful and everything is free. it means we've still got a lot of work to do and feed to have everybody put his and her shoulders to the wheel and make sure that work is done. we had a great movement in 1963 when this march happened. we ne
in america, a good job with good wages, a good education, a home of your own, affordable health care, secure retirements, even if you're not rich, more ladders of opportunity for everybody, that's what we should be fighting for. and one of the most important things we can do to restore that sense of upward mobility, the ability to achieve the american dream, the idea that if you can make it if you try, one of the most important things we can do is make sure every child is getting a good education. and the students who are studying here, they understand that. that's why they've made sacrifices. that's why their family are making sacrifices. you understand that if the face of global competition, when the germans and the chinese and the indians are all putting more money into education and putting more money into research and -- that we can't just stand pat. we can't stand by and do nothing. you understand that a great education's more important than ever. and you don't have to take my word for it. look, the data is clear. if you get some kind you have higher education, whether its a two-year d
? >> jon: william la jeunesse, thank you. america needs to pay attention to those reports of a massive and deadly chemical weapons attack in syria. that's the word from president obama. but he also explained why it could hurt us big time if the u.s. gets too involved. plus, a grim milestone on the number of child refugees now trying to escape that bloody civil war. that's still ahead on "the fox report." this man is about to be the millionth customer. would you mind if i go ahead of you? instead we had someone go ahead of him and win fiy thousand dollars. congratulations you are our one millionth customer. nobody likes to miss out. that's why ally treats all their customers the same. whether you're the first or the millionth. if your bank doesn't think you're special anymore, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. it's a reality check. i had my reality check when i'd be sitting there with my friends who had their verizon phones and i'd be sitting there like "mine's still loading!" i couldn't get email. i couldn't stream movies. i couldn't upload any of our music. that's
